Oh, cool, it's online before telly.

That's pretty cool for me, given that I don't have a telly but I do have an online.

Spoilers in 30 minutes granddads!

1) I was joking

2) It's not a spoiler if it's already been broadcast.

Does online count?
I remember having a big argument on the Curb thread about this very thing.
Where were the Mods when I needed them?

What's the reason behind putting it online first? I suppose you could say to try and garner interest, but seven series in, is it really going to grab many more people? Its small but loyal audience will be watching as always.

And as it hasn't been broadcast, it would still be a spoiler.

Online isn't "broadcast"?

How quaint.

No Kevin, it isn't. It's unicast.

Laughing out loud

Technological semantics.

Why not do a ban on spoilers before the DVD box set comes out? Or maybe even the Dave marathon? Not everybody has a DVD player.

I've lost count of the number of times I've wandered into a thread about I show I follow only to see a spoiler less than an hour after it has aired on UK terrestrial TV.

Who the f**k makes a window in their schedule in order to watch a show on TV at its Radio Times hour?

been around the world and found
that only stupid people are breeding
the cretins cloning and feeding
and I don't even own a TV

Those are lyrics to the Peep show theme tune in case anyone was wondering

Far, far, far more people than sit down and watch on-demand or recorded.

Anyway, regardless of the precise definitions, this site defines a spoiler as anything posted before the premiere television/radio broadcast of a programme. If you go in a thread after an episode has aired, it's at your own risk. If you go in beforehand, you shouldn't be faced with such details.

I would have watched online but then I noticed I had to register so I couldn't be bothered. I like the show but I can wait until its on the TV.

I hear David Mitchell isn't a fan of it being premiered online too.
